like this. he would maintain our current level of defense spending over the next eight years. he would spend way more than a cold war-style drawdown. way more than the sequester, but he would treat the budget as the new normal with slight increases over time. that's the obama plan for the biggest single thing on which we spend discretionary money. mr. obama's opponents, on the other hand, the math ticket, the hard-nosed practical numbers guys, their plan for defense spending looks like this. ta da! that's what mitt romney is proposing for military spending. an otherwise enormous amount of money. this is what they are planning on doing. the highest level of military spending since the korean war. because, you know, forget your hope and change. what the country needs is math, math, math. how does the ticket plan to balance this giant plus sign n contained in their plan? this massive increase in government spending. where does the minus come from if they want to increase spending by that much? this was the scene today in a place called van meter, iowa. this is what greeted mitt romney t
focused right now on ideas, on the defense of the ideas, bold ideas, as romney articulated last week. he changed the whole narrative. the obama campaign's effort to undermine it by these silly attacks, republicans can't stand young people, they want to kick them off their parents' health care, they want to go after women, the war on women. and now the new option, they're going after big bird, oh, my gosh. it's silly. >> when paul ryan says that the fullest extent of his experience in foreign policy is that he's voted to send people to war, when you've got joe biden whose son not only served for a year but also as a senator from delaware, he's been out there at dover sending troops off, welcoming home those caskets and not to mention he has a foreign policy expert. >> is he really a foreign policy expert? every single position that joe biden has taken on foreign policy issues for his career has been wrong. he has opposed every positive step we've taken in foreign policy. so bring him on when it comes to foreign policy. i hope that he actually does. >> the one thing you haven't mentioned o
%, increase spending on the defense budget by $2 trillion, increase medicare above ryan's idea above $716 billion. you can't take in less and spend more and balance it. that's why mitt romney, buy a $2 calculator and you'll see your plan doesn't work. >> but you're forgetting, you know, we never hear where conservatives want to spend. he wants to spend on defense. he gave a speech to the virginia military institute where he talked about if i'm president i'll buy 11 ships and including three submarines. that's a lot of money. >> the admirals don't even want the ships. just the military industrial complex wants to make the ships. >> do you want to take this one? >> you got the line. we're going to rebuild spending on the homeland. >> my bad, yeah. >> in all seriousness. >> because al qaeda's got the submarines threatening. >> governor, you're an elected official. you know when you run on a plan, you can't get -- there's a danger in getting so specific up front that you give away the house before you've even been elected into office. so mitt romney has laid down the principles by which he's
it as a defense business that pays a nice dividend. spanish slightly high. also had a tea bill auction out of italy today. for the first time in a while, yields were slightly high on the three-month. the 12-month yields, 1.94 from previously just under 1.7 in september. slightly higher auction yields for italy in the tea bill area. that's where we stand. some pretty low volume -- kind of waiting day, i'll put it like that. we'll wait to see what you guys get up to. but for now, back to you. >> okay, 00-ross, thank you. i read this a couple times. the obama campaign and supporters, including big wigs like david axelrod and robert gibbs along with several cable tv anchors. >> i think you know who -- ali has been tweeting. >> i doubt if that's andrew. >> would like you to believe that the bls -- that the data is handled like gold in fort knox, gun carrying guards watching their every move. highly trained white gloved super agents counting and recounting each number. when in fact, there are 60,000 households that these census workers call on the phone, try to get a hold of them over a one-week
and hundreds of drug tests. and that was always his defense. i did the tests, they knock on my door in the middle of the night, they come in, i do the test, i always pass. one of his former teammates said, well, i was cheating and i passed hundreds of tests as well. they have so much evidence against him. here is the list. they say they have eyewitness, documentary, firsthand, scientific, direct and circumstantial evidence and testimony from 11 former teammates. they have got 15 riders on record, 26 people in total have given sworn testimony. it doesn't look at all good for lance, does it? >> it doesn't at all, especially when he's quoted from this usada statement. lance armstrong was given the same opportunity to come forward and be part of the solution. he rejected it. what have we heard. what has cnn heard from lance armstrong or his attorney? >> he had the opportunity earlier this year to fight the charge. he said no. he basically thinks it is a witch-hunt, a kangaroo court. he thinks he can't win anyway. he thinks the whole system is set up to get him and to target him. so he d
reason to feel good about his campaign, where it is right now, after weeks on the defensive. as we noted he's rising in the polls, and seeing more enthusiasm inside the party and out on the campaign trial. one good night goes a long way but one good night does not amount to a free pass. many of the tough questions that he was facing before the debate remain on the table afterwards, and some of his answers during the debate are raising new questions. wolf blitzer spoke at length today with the republican candidate. here's a portion of that interview. >> were you surprised by the president's performance? >> i actually thought he described pretty appropriately and pretty effectively his policies. i just happen to disagree with those policies. we talked about the economy, he really is not proposing anything he hasn't talked about for the last four years. i think the challenge that he has is that his ideas are just not demonstrating the kind of results he would hope for, and people recognize that. >> are you confident, governor, that paul ryan will take on joe biden thursday night the way you
with the expert-driven economy, construction economy, companies such as 3m. a little more defensive there. >> lee, if, in fact, we're talking about slowdown in production but a rise in consumption in china, why would you buy caterpillar right now? >> well, first of all, i think we have to remember you look at a yum brand that has 40, 45% of their earnings coming from china. caterpillar has a very low amount of earnings directly from china. everybody on the street agrees that caterpillar moves with our expectation of how good china will grow. but caterpillar is just starting that growth stage versus yum. it already has so much riding on the chinese economy. the other guest, i hear you. if you think that deceleration is not going to be a problem, that's fine. i would rather go with a company that has a game to win versus a game to lose. yum is extremely dependent. that company structure is dependent on china working out. i wouldn't necessarily disagree or agree with having that stock. but caterpillar has much less of their actual earnings coming from that middle kingdom. so if we have a hard landin
